Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Rock With Wings” by Bob Faucher. Location: Navajo Nation, New Mexico.
“Shiprock, a diatremic monadnock, rises abruptly from the virtually level surrounding plain,” explains Faucher. Located within the Navajo Volcanic Field, it is a classic geologically distinct landform of the Colorado Plateau. The landforms of the Navajo Volcanic Field also figure prominently in the empirical knowledge and culture of the indigenous Navajo people.”
